Ecology Action Centre's ECoAS Project
The Educating Coastal Communities About Sea-level Rise (ECoAS) Project is co-led initiative designed to translate scientific climate change research into useable information to educate coastal communities within Atlantic Canada about the need for planning for future sea-level rise impacts. The Ecology Action Centre has teamed up with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to create this informative website along with workshops for coastal residents, fisherman, and municipalities about rising seas that are specific to our region.
The aims of this project are to:
- Help communities learn about sea-level rise and how it affects them
- Provide access to tools that have been developed locally with the latest climate change information available
- Illustrate the need for incorporating sea-level rise into future plans
